IATF 16949 Clause - Justification for non-certified suppliers

How do you others address distributors that are not certified, and you can't find their product manufacturer certification on websites, or they won't share who their suppliers are, then how do you justify using distributors for small volume?
These are very interesting discussion, in our industry we come up in some regions with a bigger issue. We buy rubber, and in certain cuntries that comes from Governmental controlled sources, that are certified by the controlling government, basically they refuse to be certified to ISO9001 as they see it as non value added. We are not able to use any other sources, and the Customer is aware of this, so is the CB, Last time I was present at both customer and CB audits, they always avoid asking about this supplier.

However this is the only time I have seen this 'exception'
